Microsoft Teams is a collaboration tool that is part of the Office 365 suite of services. Teams enable remote, global, and dispersed teams to work together and collaborate through a common workspace, team chat, one-on-one chat, document collaboration, and more. Teams is integrated with a variety of other Office 365 services, including OneDrive, OneNote, Planner, Exchange, and SharePoint.
